About Mary Hill

Mary grew up in Shelburne, Vermont next to Lake Champlain. She has always loved color and design. Batik and hand printed fabric were some of Mary’s early mediums. Her first business, “Spudprints” was a hand painted clothing company,  featuring brilliant combinations of color using actual potatoes for prints! Her clothing sold up and down the east coast for a number of years.

After her kids grew to a certain age she began painting on wooden blocks which evolved quickly into rustic peace banners. These were another colorful success and she later photographed them and turned  them into a line of greeting cards.

Mary paints murals and custom decorative paintings for private homes and businesses.

Mary loves leading groups of women on retreat in creative thinking and “making”.  She organizes community painting workshops to decorate banners which hang off the telephone poles in her town. The theme for the project is “What do you love about Underhill?”
